to tell you, a few minutes ago, president obama landed in hawaii, 72 degrees there was the temperature on the ground. certainly warmer than it is in washington, certainly warmer than the political climate that president obama left behind here here in washington. it was a strip down agreement. he basically is saying we have to come up with some solution to help the majority of american taxpayers while we still avoid coming up with the majority of the details for what was supposed to help us avoid the fiscal cliff. it would ensure tax rates would not go up for 98% of americans, it would also ensure that unemployment benefits would be extended for about 2 million americans who would lose them otherwise if we went over the fiscal cliff. finally, it would work to lay the groundwork for the larger reform. so if we're looking for specific details here, not a whole lot of them. this is coming up with almost an emergency solution. we know that president obama did speak by phone with speaker john boehner yesterday, met at the white house with democrat harry reid. however, publicly what is being
